Why Pinpoint’s a great choice of recruitment software for startups

We move fast

We’re built on modern technology and release new features every month in response to changes in recruitment best practice, feedback from customers, and changes in the candidate market.

We understand your market

We’re a high growth start-up too. We know what it takes to attract and hire the best talent in tech—from AE’s to engineers.

We do the hard work for you

Your team’s already busy so we take the pain of implementing a new system away from you.

Sure, we respond to support messages in under 2 minutes on average. But we also do the hard work for you. Building your careers site, migrating your data, building your workflows, training your team, and sharing best practices.

We care about design and UX

The best software in the world is pointless unless people like to use it and your team probably knows good design from bad. That’s why we invest heavily in design and user experience to make sure Pinpoint’s a tool your recruiters, your hiring managers, and your candidates love to use.

All of the other ATS platforms were very grey, very corporate, and very old fashioned. Pinpoint is easier to navigate, had a fresher feel to it, and is more enjoyable to use.

  • Your startup’s growing fast, but you find it hard to attract the right people fast enough
  • You’ve just closed a round and have an ambitious hiring plan

  2. Save time by automating admin like scheduling interviews.
  3. Make better hiring decisions with structured scorecards, blind screening, and reporting.
  4. Build a database of candidates that you love, that love you, but that you haven’t been able to hire yet which makes hiring even faster in the future.
  5. Automate compliance including global data protection regulations.

How much does startup recruitment software cost?


Most startups at seed or Series A spend between $5,000 and $20,000 per year.
